Temple players will continue to try to make their mark in the NFL. From last year's 7-6 team that won the Bad Boy Mowers Gasparilla Bowl, there are nine players in NFL camps.
Two of them were drafted: defensive lineman-linebacker Jacob Martin, a sixth-round selection of the Seattle Seahawks, and defensive tackle Jullian Taylor, a seventh-round pick of the San Francisco 49ers. The other seven were signed as undrafted free agents.
The 2018 draft marked the third straight year that Temple has had multiple players selected. In 2017, the Owls had three players drafted: LB Haason Reddick, first round, Arizona; OT Dion Dawkins, second round, Buffalo; and CB Nate Hairston, fifth round, Indianapolis. The 2016 draft had CB Tavon Young (fourth round, Baltimore), DT Matt Ioannidis (fifth round, Washington) and LB Tyler Matakevich (seventh round, Pittsburgh).
